Thread subject: Dennis Feeding The Chicks
Name Date Message
Tiger 05/27/05 02:19 pm I have just seen Dennis feeding the chicks. The male feeding the chicks was thought to be rarer than "osprey teeth".

The only two examples I have ever heard of was the legendary Ollie when he was left as a single parent And I think NoRing at Lake District last year (need to check that one).

But of course I now remember it was not Noring. It was Henry at Loch Garten.

See:

Cecilia 05/27/05 02:26 pm I was watching too and didn't realize it was him until Betty moved into clean up a loose piece. WTG!
Tiger 05/27/05 02:28 pm I said that he was a bit of a nest husband. Wonder if he is getting all those fish from the supermarket! :)

Mickey 05/27/05 03:41 pm Actually, Last years Dennis fed the chicks on occasion. Its not that uncommon.
Tiger 05/28/05 05:34 am Well it was thought to be very uncommon but as always conventional wisdom changes. Now that we have seen it more often I guess "conventional wisdom" will have to change.

One of my basic teaching axioms is that everything is "best current opinion"......it could all change tomorrow and mostly does!
